  •  Not only is Ryan lying, he incorporated Democratic (0+ / 0-)

    ..fiscal policies/achievments into his newest "10 year balancing" budget.

    Ryans new budget proves Dems solutions work..
    .. and employs them to support his latest budget – the budget he touts will balance the budget in 10 years
     

    Robert Greenstein @ CBPP exposes Paul Ryans  cooking the books and “obfuscation”
     • Ryans new budget includes the new revenues coming from taxes Ryan/republicans fought against (fiscal curb)
     • Ryan also uses currently diminishing deficit to bolster his “base line” projection
     • Ryan uses savings from PPACA (Obama care which he opposed) as part of his budget
     • Ryan disguises his program cuts behind vague block grants which don’t specify hurtful cuts leaving that to states
    Link to full discussion: http://www.nbcnews.com/... Paul Ryan actually admits his  budget’s “new baseline” is dependent upon increased revenue: “now that the fiscal cliff is behind us…” – Ryans words

    Thx Vyan - just thought to add Robert Greenstein assessment on top
